FAB LA Salon Spotlight-A Place to Fuel, Work Out, Shop, Pamper

Thursday, June 28, 2012

The ever-so fabulous Nicole Winnaman is kind of a huge deal in the entertainment industry. Like literally. She's put together multi-million dollar endorsement deals for the likes of Britney Spears and Fergie. The girl seems to have the Midas touch! So, when she invited me to the grand opening of VIP Beauty, a posh beauty and hair salon fabulously situated in the back of her popular Rockit Workout studio in Pasadena, I immediately RSVPed.

Nicole's Rockit studio is centrally located in Old Town, Pasadena on the tree lined beauty that is Green Street. Don't be fooled by the name-the space is not just a workout studio as it's also home to Blend 54 Tea Bar and Industry 1212 clothing boutique. With the opening of VIP Beauty Salon, a girl can pretty much spend the entire day effortlessly gliding from one station to the next getting our FWBS (food, work out, beauty, shopping) needs fulfilled!

VIP Beauty houses some major VIP stylists and colorists. Twice a week, Dani Hernandez, whose set of skilled hands are responsible for Victoria Beckham and Rachel Zoe's gorgeous locks, makes the commute from the Byron Tracey salon in Beverly Hills to color the tresses of in-the-know Pasadenaians. I grew up near Pasadena so I'm excited that gals in San Gabriel Valley no longer have to make the trek to LA salons to get LA style!

Inspirational posters can found throughout the space. Girl power!

The black, white and yellow color scheme is fresh, modern and adds a touch of whimsy

The back courtyard space is zen-like and so pretty!
